So this is a weird one, but I figured that it may be good to know for the people that this will impact. Captial One in making some minor changes to some cards in its portfolio.
Quite a few cards in Capital One’s portfolio is changing credit networks. Some are going from Visa to Mastercard, and one is going from Mastercard to Visa.
- Visa -> Mastercard: Quicksilver Cash Rewards, Spark Miles, Spark Miles Select
- Mastercard -> Visa: Journey Student Rewards
All of these cards will get redesigns and may appear with a new number
I’m not sure why this changing is taking place, but I can’t imagine this would impact too many people. The main example that I can would be if you previously used one of the Visa cards at Costco, and it’s changing to a Mastercard. Otherwise, the only other real difference is the insurances that Mastercard and Visa provide.
Do you have one of these cards? Is there a reason that you may not want this? Let us know what you think in the comment section below.
